Bob Ostertag: Verbatim
OUT OF PRINT
Mark Dresser: contrabass
Gerry Hemingway: percussion
Bob Ostertag: sampling
Part 3 in the Say No More series, Verbatim is derived from
three of human / virtual collaboration with three master
improvisors. First, the players recorded solos which
Ostertag assembled into a trio recording. Next, the group
learned this "virtual trio" music and played it live. Finally,
Verbatim was assembled on computer from fragments of live
performances of Say No More in Person creating an
astonishing stereo soundscape of rich and unique textures.
Comes in a paper sleeve with an attractive paint-by-number
motif by D-L Alvarez.
Check out Part 4 of the Say No More series,
Verbatim: Flesh and Blood (BRD 035).
Reissues of these and other Bob Ostertag recordings are available
"...listeners will find this music disturbing,
confrontational, and at times quite beautiful."
